"New" 05 LS

Hey everyone. I just got my cobalt a few weeks ago and stumbled on this site looking for all the different oppertunities to do mods.

P.S. also had to jump start my car and the gas gauge went south, literally.. so was looking for a way to solve that....turns out its as easy as opening it and pushing it back LOL

Ill post pics soon bone stock. lots of mods I want to do

what % tint do you have in that picture. im planning on going as dark as I can in ontario. 15 or 20 i think it was.

at the risk of sounding like a dummy, what is plastdip dip? The emblem either has to go or i have to make it look good.

Thanks :D

Plastidip is a spray type of stuff that can be peeled off later. For some reason its the lastest craze that just won't go away. Personally I would spray paint your bowtie a color of your choice, have some shine to it and not some cheap look. Plastidiping wheels is a eh thing, its a nice option that way you can take it off if you get bored. Personally nothing beats new wheels once you can swing it.

Welcome to the forum though, hope you enjoy it here. Nice place most of the time

I kinda like your car the way it is, but I'm old school.
It is always nice to personalize your vehicle to your liking and to have it a little different so your friends know it's you. Also you can pick it out of all the other Cobalts out there. Your lucky your colour stands out right from the start. Mine's gold like about a million others. Welcome to the Forum and enjoy your car. Carefull removing the quick nuts on front emblem if you are going to paint it.

car looks clean man! Welcome to the forum!!! New rims and drop would be well worth it for you and you'd be quite happy. Tints are great too especially to cut the heat and brightness in the summer.

and coby07 it's funny you should say that. Any of my friends would recognize me coming wether it be by sound or by sight, I think my cobalt is one of, if not THE most unique in my city haha. Not many modded cobalts here, but I've seen a couple floating around, nothing similar to mine.

my tint is 35% all around with a 5% huge windshield strip, i really regret not going 20% during the day for looks, but at night im happy to have 35% because its keeps the cops off my back and nightvision is still good.
